For courses in Freshman Composition and Argumentative Writing. This composition reader promotes the skills of written argument by stimulating students to think and write about actual, compelling court cases. Its application of general rules to specific disputes provides an ideal approach to the development of logical thought and argument. Chapters feature broad and narrow issues of conflict, and student role-playing (as jury members, prosecutors, or defense attorneys) to make claims (i.e., arrive at verdicts), based on support (the facts and evidence of the case itself), and to apply standards (the relevant laws).
